    Crazy court decision on custody issue

    I saw this in the Pittsburgh newspaper the other day. Interesting to say the least, maybe not sooo far a stretch these days...

    COURT RULING, Pittsburgh, PA, June 29, 2006
    > Pittsburgh, PA (AP) - A seven year old boy was at the center of
    > a Pittsburgh courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling
    > over who should have custody of him.
    > The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge
    > initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with the child custody
    > law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the
    > degree possible.
    > The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him
    > more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When
    > the judge suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried
    > out that they also beat him.
    > After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning
    > that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the
    > Judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who
    > should have custody of him.
    > After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child
    > welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Pittsburgh
    > Pirates, who the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.
